Chapter 5. Models for Power and Thermal Estimation

In the previous chapter, we examined models for the early performance estimation of on-chip communication architectures. In addition to performance, power is another important architectural design constraint, that is beginning to dominate multiprocessor SoC (MPSoC) design, particularly for mobile applications such as cellular phones, MP3 players, and laptops. These portable devices run on batteries that have a limited energy budget between charges. MPSoC designs intended for use in such portable scenarios must have lower power consumption, to improve user experience. Reducing power consumption is also a priority for non-portable MPSoC applications, such as those used in server farms that tend ...
